Darin’s ancestors planted their roots in Ochiltree County in 1900 which meant he grew up as a self-described “farm kid” in the far north Texas Panhandle. “That work ethic was instilled in me at a very early age,” he says today. “Whether it be delivering a calf in the dead of winter or fixing fence in a driving snowstorm, that type of work will give you an appreciation for an opportunity at a company like NCW.” On a typical day in our offices, you won’t see Darin assisting in any livestock births. Instead, he works with business owners to identify their needs and provide a complete solution for their employee benefits. Bearing a marketing degree from WTAMU, he spent many years in the retail industry, serving small towns throughout the Panhandle. He loves that his career allows him to meet so many different people.
